    Bought new linea classic
    On the time of delivery it did not crank up,

    1. Lights will glow
    2. Some Hissing Sound will come (Hope Fuel Pump)
    3. And when further turn to MAR, a click sound will come but won't start.

    If we repeat this few times. It'll start after a long key stroke.
    Sometimes this happens on traffic signal also. Which is very embracing.

    What's the problem, is it any technical stuff or problem with battery ?
    But all other functions like lights, audio, power window all works fine..

    If you faced the problem, why did you take the delivery before sorting out?
    What does the FASS say? Did you check with them?

    Once again please send feedback email to Fiat immediately about the issue. Either during problem solving or after that. Do let us know what the issue is as per the FASC.

    Actually FASS said, as the key is new it is so sharp (LOL), after a small wear & tear, it'll be ok they said. It was a very weird reply from them. But suddenly it started. And checked thrice on/off it was perfect. So took the delivery.

    Today only that problem occurred again. On parking the car. Because this i afraid to switch off engine on signal.
    My suspect is battery might be a bit weak. As i took the vehicle right from their yard.

    Sure sounds like a battery issue. You'll be able to get it replaced under warranty. Wish you'd done a better PDI, huh? Especially since the car was, i am guessing, bought a few months after it had been in their stockyard. Anyway, not a big deal, don't fret. How do you find the Linea Classic, otherwise, compared to what you were driving earlier? You seem to have modded it smartly! Just the thing to do with the Classic with all that money saved! Do post pics.

    Either the battery is on the verge of dying or the charging system has an issue. Hope you have the warranty card on the battery, if so get it replaced if the signs are still there. Or else FASS will have to check the battery charging circuit.

    Surprised to know that this wasnt deliberated during PDI and FASS needs a strong kick on their behind for their key guffaws. Report this to Fiat India, let them know they have morons on board to service the Fiat cars. BTW who is this FASS delaer/workshop?

    You were right :) it's the battery issue. took it for a 130kms drive. Now everything is alright.
    Just now starting modding, will post the pics by evening. :)

    And does your alloys, get covered with black smoke kinda thing after a 100km drive ? like brake shoe's smoke ?
    coz when wiped with finger black carbon like thing came. I think that came from brake shoes (front wheel)

    Thats brake dust & not any kind of smoke and will be visible only for the front wheels since they have disc brakes. Ensure that you clean them regularly.
